Took a shot at the last dusty bottle on the shelf - call it an homage to @"Odedi" - ended up being stunning: inky opaque dark dense & mysterious... after more than an hour (and throughout rest of night & next day) finally yielding generous blackberry, plum, black cherry and an absolute slew of authentic secondary notes of mineral, saddle leather, tobacco, menthol, meat, white pepper - so complex. Old World. Thick rich broad across palate, lingering finish. This wine had me grinning ear to ear - especially @ $18!
